Can You Drive a Rental Car Out of State? | Avis Rent a Car


 Can I take a rental car across state lines?

Yes, you do have the option to take your Avis rental car out of state. Feel free to explore metro areas that cover several states or to take long road trips across the country. Keep in mind that if you are dropping the car off at another location (in or out of state), some restrictions and fees may apply.


Driving a Rental Car Out of State

If you’re planning a trip, you may be wondering, “Can I take a rental car out of state?” Luckily, when you book a vehicle with Avis, you get the added perk of being able to take your rental car across state lines. Not all car rental companies allow interstate travel, and this option gives you more flexibility on a vacation or business trip. Whether you’re taking a road trip, visiting a loved one, or flying out of an airport across state lines, Avis is happy to serve you.

You’re welcome to drive an Avis rental car in multiple states. However, you’ll need to book a one-way rental in advance because some additional fees may apply if you pick up and drop off at separate locations. 

Contact customer service if you have questions about one-way rental fees for interstate travel.
